Bethenny Frankel controversy: From Hello Kitty toddler pajamas to men's clothing

See also

Bethenny Frankel is one of the wackiest television personalities out there. From starring on “The Real Housewives of New York City” to having a one-season talk show, Frankel has been around for a few years. Just a few days ago, Frankel posted a photo of herself wearing her 4-year-old daughter's Hello Kitty pajamas. Controversy lit up social media and some of the comments made weren't very nice. According to a July 16 report from E! Online, Bethenny Frankel posted a new photo to Instagram wearing men's clothing. This is rather puzzling to both critics and fans.

After the photo of Bethenny Frankel made the social media rounds, several comments were made about eating disorders. Accusations that Frankel suffered from an eating disorder was tossed around, and there were even reports that the photo allegedly supported people struggling with eating disorders. That is not the case at all. Frankel was asked by her daughter to wear the pajamas and she obliged as most mothers would. The only difference is that Frankel is tinier than some other mothers and fit into the pajamas, even though they were tight-looking.

As the controversy is still front and center, Bethenny Frankel has taken to Twitter with snarky comments. One particular comment was written about her daughter still owning clothing she wore when she was two, and Frankel hopes that is not sending the “wrong message” to toddlers. Many of the commentators who attacked Frankel for her photo were other moms. While the photo may not have been in good taste, it definitely wasn't put out there by Frankel with malicious intent. It was a joke as she has stated over and over.

The future isn't clear as to where fans will see Bethenny Frankel next, but she is keeping herself relevant for now. With “Bethenny” being canceled, there is no telling if Frankel will be back on television or choose to spend more time with her family. As the controversy dies down, it is nice to see Frankel still has a sense of humor by posing in over-sized men's clothing after setting social media on fire just days ago.
